NOTE: Red Earth was imagined and brought to life by Travis Gravette in 2010. He explains, “our name was inspired from the red dirt roads and footpaths of rural Uganda,” a place that became near and dear to his heart during college and thereafter. Over the course of several years working to empower local leaders in Uganda, Travis met a number of artisans whose excellent craftsmanship allowed them to support their families. Now five years strong this company assists artisans worldwide to grow their businesses and to create new job opportunities. Read more about Red Earth here.

Peppercorn Kids Review

 Peppercorn Kids :: Review :: 10% Off :: as featured on Gifts with Bows #giftswithbows #GWBFor the little girl who lights up your life, on her birthday or any special occasion.

She’ll love the bright and cheery colors and you’ll love how they make her glow and brighten up her sweet world.

:: Exotic Paisley Headband in Scarlet Red$10 :: Tassel Fringe Necklace in Orange/White $17 :: Fish Bracelet/Anklet in Blue $12 :: c/o Peppercorn Kids :: Review

Have you ever bought something blissfully adorable for a darling kiddo, but despite your anticipation that she’ll immediately put it on, twirl and grin, she frowns and hands it back? Or worse. Yeah, this happens. And it’s totally disappointing. But despite living that scenario many times before, that is not what happened when Zoe peeked into the Peppercorn Kids package I presented to her. Her reactions? Total glee as she put on the necklace all by herself (oh thank you, magnetic clasp!). Utter amusement with the “fishy” bracelet and an outstretched arm to try it on. And a sparkly “thank you mommy!” when I brushed her hair out of her eyes and held it back with her new, vibrant headband. And to be honest, we rarely have headband success.

But it’s not just the quality or the cuteness of the PK products that got my interest. This is a company that cares about kiddos and the world they live in. Peppercorn Kids partners with St. Jude’s Hospital, a non-profit cancer research children’s hospital, to give hundreds of head scarves to children who have lost their hair to chemotherapy through The Rainbow Mission. In addition, PK proudly supports World Vision, a non-profit organization that works hard to help exploited children around the world to find hope and new life.

You’ll frequently see that I shine a light on companies with strong missions and beautiful intentions, and those things are quite apparent in Peppercorn Kids. When you give a child a PK gift it can serve as a great conversation starter to discuss St. Jude’s or World Vision, especially when a child is ready for an introduction to the importance and significance of philanthropy.
